Voting rights. Extraordinary General Meeting, 2017.
Voting Rights: How to Vote?
As part of our continued efforts on good corporate governance we encourage shareholders to exercise their voting rights at the Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of Credit Suisse Group AG.
In order to vote on the proposals, the shares must be registered with our Share Register.
The registration of shares is not mandatory under Swiss law. Therefore, registered shares are not automatically registered in our Share Register. However, registration is easy and must be arranged through submission of the respective instructions to your custodian. The registration process usually takes 3 to 5 days. Registration can be in the beneficial owner's name or in a nominee's name.
Registered shares are not blocked from trading at any time. Shares only qualify for voting if entered in the Share Register with voting rights three working days before the EGM (Record Date). The Record Date for the EGM 2017 is May 15, 2017.
Issuing instructions electronically through the shareholder portal
On the shareholder portal https://gvmanager.ch/, shareholders may provide voting instructions to the independent proxy electronically or order an admission card for the Shareholders Meeting.If you have any questions regarding the exercise of your voting rights or the registration of your shares, please contact our Share Register.
